(EW.com) -- Is she a good Twitter girl gone bad?

Rihanna has taken to the 140-character site to offer up a steamy image of herself on Wednesday -- in which she strikes a strategically covered-up topless pose with the message, "Where have you been all my life?!"

The post has sent already-wagging tongues into overdrive, wondering if this is just another part of her alleged feud with Chris Brown's current girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran.

Last week, the songstress tweeted a feasibly harmless but potentially offensive picture of a packet of rice cakes dressed up in hoop earrings and shades with the caption, "Ima make you my b****." Rihanna's followers made the obvious link to Tran, who is half-Vietnamese.

Stars react to Chris Brown, Rihanna
Should Chris Brown be forgiven?

Then, when one of Rihanna's followers asked her to save him some rice cakes, she responded with, "Kinda DRY." Was it all a thinly veiled dig? Maybe. Maybe not.

On her "Birthday Cake (Remix)" single with Brown, she does sing, "Come and get it / Sweeter than a rice cake / Cake worth sipping." And anyone who has ever eaten a rice cake knows that yes, they can be dry.

While we were busy decoding Rihanna's twitpic game, Tran retaliated with Nicki Minaj lyrics on her Facebook. "I win you loose!!! [sic] *nicki voice* I mean I got him, you got pictures of him" with a friend posting adding, "I'm Angelina, you Jennifer. C'mon, you see where Brad at." Jab? Again, maybe. Maybe not.

Tran tweeted that she doesn't even have a Facebook page, but that retreat didn't seem to phase Rihanna, who fire back song lyrics from Minaj's rival, Lil Kim: "I'm a leader, yall on some followin s***, comin in dis game on some modeling s***!"

Is this a full-on feud? It's all still a mystery. Either way, it's clear these two won't be trading friendship bracelets and braiding each others' hair anytime soon.

What do you think? Is this a war of words or is just some silly social-media back-and-forth?
